Has anyone noticed if you change your name on FreeVue, it keeps it
posted for hours?

I did alot of name changes yesterday, over a 4 hour period, and I
think I ended up with 45 nicks still listed after I logged off.

Weird, maybe they do that 2 make people think there is alot of users.

But, I found that it can also be used as a joke, because all of your
previous nicks, get forwarded to you. Example, you can create 10
names, and the messages to all of them will come to you. Tends to
make some people angry I've noticed. You can also see certain people
scan over and over for female names, ect.
